DLSL Bags Silver in Rebisco VLeague National Finals
DLSL High School Girls Volleyball Team landed in the silver finish in the national finals of the Rebisco Volleyball League Girls Under 18 tournament. The Green Chevrons clashed with three-time UAAP Juniors Champ Nazareth School of National University.

The Lipa-based squad showed aggressiveness with NCR’s powerhouse team with closely-fought thrillers, 25-23, 24-26, 25-14, 25-12. Prior the final match, DLSL swept the eliminations with a 6-0 standing. DLSL Head Coach Ronwald Dimaculangan reminded his girls to give their opponents a smart play in their week-long tourney. “We gave our best; NU showed raised the level of our game. We have a young team and we hope that our new players will learn a lot from this. We are happy with what we achieved given we are in a rebuilding phase,” said Dimaculangan.1 Well noted by the spectators was the positive attitude given by our girls – how they celebrate every point they win despite their struggles in the last two sets.



DLSL won four individual awards in the anticipated national finals – Mirgie Bautista as the 2nd Best Outside Attacker, Alleiah Malaluan as the Best Opposite Attacker, Janel Maraguinot as the Best Setter, and Reign Lumbera as the Best Libero.



The Rebisco Volleyball League Girls Under 18 National Finals was held on Nov. 20 – 26, 2017 at the City of Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Sports Complex.

Athletes from the University of the Philippines High School, Adamson University, Lyceum of the Philippines University - Laguna, Maryhill College, and National University will be competing with DLSL and Pencil Inc.'s players.

The event's proceeds will be directly forwarded (in cash or in kind) to De La Salle Philippines, who is working closely with La Salle Academy in Iligan. La Salle Academy has become one of the main areas of refuge for those fleeing from the conflict in Marawi.

Below is the schedule of games:

DLSL Alumnus Showcases Brassworks in Exhibit
Jonathan Dangue, De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) high school batch 2001 alumnus, showcased his brassworks in an exhibit entitled "Stoic Drinks", September 19 to October 2, at Galerie Francesca, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City and at ManilArt 2017, Oct. 12 to 15, at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura, Taguig City.

"Stoic Drinks," according to Dangue, was inspired by his current life situation. He used brass as an antenna to send a message to the universe. He used "sigils" (power symbolisms) for each brass piece - drawn from his research on the former. Each work has stones serving as charms aiming to project energies - for the earth to listen to one’s vibrations (needs).

For instance, Dangue utilized carnelian in "Positibong Naiisip," a protection versus jealousy and anger. It also looks into cultivating harmonious relationships. On the other hand, black tourmaline was meant to connect an individual with the earth’s energies. It was said to provide protection and attract wealth.

Every stone or clear crystal is enclosed in clear resin, a symbol of fluidity and water - also connected with the subconscious, emotions, and the soul. Each piece likewise symbolizes a "drink", considered an antidote to life's frustrations - thus the exhibit's title.  

Beginnings as a Sculptor

Dangue began receiving invitations to group and solo sculpture shows when he joined Metrobank Art and Design Excellence (MADE) in 2011. Since then, he graced invitations from well-known Philippine art galleries such as the Art Verite, Pinto Museum, Art Cube, Boston Gallery, Galerie Francesca, and others.

"Sculpture, just like architecture, deals with 3D space. Sculpting gives me more freedom to express myself and gave me more time to reflect and meditate. I can study myself as a human being. Self-reflection through the arts can make you know yourself better," Dangue expressed.

Dangue is an architect by profession. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree, Major in Design and Applied Arts from Mapua Institute of Technology.  

Lasallian Roots

In high school, Dangue recalled having joined numerous art contests - even failing several times as well. He did not mind losing, for what he valued was the process of expressing himself through the arts.

He also took up graphic arts and portrait arts lessons in the campus. Moreover, he reiterated on how the institution molded him to become an innovator and to decide upon his calling in life. He fondly recalls how, through the Guidance Office, he would openly discuss his career options. The values of being a doer, learner, sharer/server, and leader, moreover, according to him, remain instilled in him. These were just some of the ways DLSL was instrumental in his formative years, according to him.





DLSL Law Professor Earns a Doctor of Laws
Judge Maria Cecilia Austria-Chua, an esteemed member of De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) College of Law's Corps of Professors, was recently conferred by the San Beda College Graduate School of Law, Manila with the degree Doctor of the Science of Jurisprudence (or JSD), or what is commonly known as Doctor of Laws.

Before a panel composed of distinguished luminaries in the academe as well as the legal and judicial professions, she masterfully expounded on and defended her doctoral dissertation "A Proposal for New Rules of Procedure for Administrative Cases Involving First and Second Level Trial Court Judges." Judge Austria-Chua also garnered her Master of Laws degree from the same institution after successfully making a case for her thesis "Mainstreaming Community Service in the Philippine Criminal Justice System." As remarkable and heady as these stellar achievements significantly are, Judge Austria-Chua has always been, and continues to be, known by her JD students and colleagues in the legal academia to be very diligent in her work, possessed of exacting standards yet tempered by a highly empathetic demeanor. Judge Austria-Chua is currently the Presiding Judge of Branch 2, Regional Trial Court, Batangas City especially constituted as a Commercial Court. CONGRATULATIONS, Dr. Judge Austria-Chua! 





DLSL Celebrates Mental Health Week
"A semicolon is used when an author could've chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life." - Project Semicolon

10 student organizations, led by the Psychology Society and in coordination with the College Guidance Center, held this year's Mental Health Week celebration, September 11 to 20 with the theme "Project Semicolon: Life Value and Appreciation".

Art and Play therapy booths were set up at the Mabini Exhibit Area. A Suicide Awareness and Prevention Seminar themed "#YouMatter" by Mr. Nico Niño Evardone was also held. A poem writing contest, poster making contest, quiz bee, photo contest, and search for the Mr. and Ms. Ambassadors of Mental Health ensued.  

A semicolon is used as the symbol of life appreciation, signifying that people choose to continue living even if they could have chosen not to. It is metaphorically linked with this punctuation mark since a semicolon literally connects two related clauses two form a sentence instead of ending the sentence already with a period. This symbolism was developed by Project Semicolon, a faith-based non-profit encouraging and supporting those with addiction, depression, and suicidal thoughts or self-injury.





DLSL Celebrates National Peace Consciousness Month

Invited peace advocates Rekha Nahar and Nina Wawrzeniuk will also share their insights on the peace process and other relevant issues.

Other school-wide activities include the creation of the biggest peace crane, 1000 peace cranes, letters of peace, peace art installation, peace awareness campaign, Achieving Nation Peace Debate, Rosary for Peace Crusade, among others.

In support of the activities, the entire community will wear white t-shirt with the peace badge (please see badge design found in this write-up).





DLSL Intensifies Access Point Installation in IS Areas
De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) continues rolling out its Digital Campus initiatives by installing 160 wireless access points in several campus locations. They can already be found in various Integrated School (IS) classrooms and common areas - from the Hall of Lasallian Saints (HLS), Brother Benilde (BB), Brother Miguel (BM), Claro M Recto (CMR), Jose Rizal - Noli (JRN), to the Jose Rizal - Fili (JRF) Buildings. This is to facilitate blended learning, allowing students and Lasallian partners to access the Canvas learning management system (LMS) and other digital learning platforms. Access points (APs) are networking hardware devices allowing the connection of a Wi-Fi device to a wired network. APs are often connected to a router through a wired network as a standalone device.

More installations will commence the following week - from the Mabini Building (MB), College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management (CBEAM) Building, and other college areas.

Students can now log in their Canvas LMS account through their DLSL email address powered by Gmail. Meanwhile, faculty members may now import their respective course contents via Canvas.

DLSL Network Infrastructure Project and LMS Deployment Status













DLSL Statement on the Network Infrastructure Project and LMS Status

DLSL Gears towards Social Innovation through CAPSTONE Initiatives
Following the institution's drive towards providing human-centric academic programs, De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) rolled out Community-Based Action Projects Addressing Strategically-Themed Learning Objectives through Networked Environments (CAPSTONE) initiatives.

Through such, Integrated School students' projects are already community-based, offering real-world solutions to real-world problems. Performance task guidelines have also been tweaked to become collaborative, integrative, multi- and inter-disciplinary.

CAPSTONE projects are now part of the IS curriculum, based on the Educational Innovation Framework recently developed to come up with a transformative approach to meet society's most pressing needs. This framework shows how core values meet innovation - vital to DLSL as it fosters customer-centered services. Social innovation and soft skills development are likewise focal in this curriculum change, thereby emphasizing on "students' engagement outside the classroom, treatment of education as a service to society, and as a support for students already in the 21st century." 

In coordination with the City Government of Lipa, DLSL partners assist the students in coming up with feasible and sustainable projects for various communities. Grades 4 to 8 will be conducting their CAPSTONE projects within the school, while Grades 9 to 12 will be deployed in various communities in Lipa. Students will then be determining their purpose, conducting research, coming up with possible solutions, planning, strategizing, and implementing their programs. Specific priority focus areas include education and literacy, health and sanitation, and livelihood and wealth creation. These and other considerations on community visits have been discussed to the students for the past two weeks to help them prepare for their projects.

Also paramount to project creation is the adoption of design thinking principles. By "putting oneself in others' shoes" when developing solutions, a greater impact is expected.

DLSL Confers First 40-Year Service Award at General Assembly
The annual Lasallian Partners' General Assembly signals the beginning of a new academic year for the institution as the gathering likewise recognizes the service awardees who remain steadfast in their respective fields while manifesting their faith, zeal for service and communion in mission.

It was a notable get-together and a worthwhile celebration, especially when a new record of 40 years of service was set by one of the Lasallian Partners - seasoned faculty member - Ms. Carmelita C. Sarmiento. Her four decades of dedication and commitment to the Lasallian education was acknowledged together with 63 awardees that were conferred on July 17, 2017 at the SENTRUM.

President and Chancellor, Br. Dante Jose R. Amisola FSC, welcomed back everyone in the gathering after a long break by the faculty members and congratulated the awardees, newbies, and newly permanent Lasallian Partners. Following his commendation to Ms. Sarmiento, he enjoined everyone to pause for a minute to offer a prayer to another member of the DLSL community for more than 30 years and the awardee's better half, Mr. Lito Sarmineto, who passed away in July.  His message was a reiteration of the homily of Fr. Eugene Hechanova who led the preceding Eucharistic Celebration. The school president urged everyone to be guided by God for inspiration to carry out their duties with faith, zeal for service and communion in mission.  

For a minimum of 10 continuous years of service after permanency, Lasallian Partners are acknowledged for their valuable contribution. Below are the recipients of the award.

DLSL-Led Secondary Girls' Volleyball Team Scores Bronze in ASEAN School Games
Representing no less than the country in the 2017 ASEAN School Games, the Secondary Girls' Volleyball team, composed mainly of De La Salle Lipa Green Chevron athletes, brought pride and honor aside from the bronze medal they earned.

From July 15 to 19, 2017 the young Lasallians, together with selected players from Luzon, battled it out with the region's toughest teams; a notable match was that with Thailand which the Thais won by five sets. It was the third game for the Philippines after slaying two other teams, Malaysia (25-18 | 25-20 | 25-16) and Singapore (26-24 | 25-17 | 25-11), in prior matches that the Filipinas dominated in three straight sets each. Although the Thais are known to be quite adept with the game that the Filipinos have come to embrace and enjoy, the Philippine athletes proved that they are a force to reckon with after giving the opponents a taste of the championship match with a very close score for every set 25-23 | 25-27 | 23-25 | 25-22 | 14-16. The team won a bronze medal after succumbing to the Indonesians in three straight sets 15-25 | 18-25 | 17-25.

Back home, viewers on Facebook live held their breath every time a set came to a close call and they could only be grateful for the tenacity and heart that the young athletes displayed which was enough character for such neophytes. 

Aside from the Secondary Girls' Volleyball team, the DLSL community commends the efforts as well by another Green Chevron Secondary Boys' Volleyball team member, John Mark Ronquillo, who also received a bronze medal, and swimmer, Robin Louise Tolentino, who was also part of the Philippine delegation.

The DLSL-led Secondary Girls' Volleyball team in the ASEAN School Games, hosted by Singapore, was composed by Green Chevrons, Kimberly Adajar, Mary Mirgie Bautista, Jamie Margaret Frago, Yvonne Cyrah Humarang, Alleiah Jan Malaluan and Janel Maraguinot, together with their head coach, Regine Diego, and assistant, Peter Perez.

After a long journey that landed the Secondary Girls' Volleyball team a gold medal in the 2017 Palarong Pambansa, it served as their ticket to the ASEAN School Games. This victory of the team is a second bronze for DLSL after the first in the same tournament back in 2013 by the Secondary Boys' Volleyball team.

De la Salle Lipa Graduate School Hosts First Research Colloquium
Lipa City - As the first batch of students for the thesis program of the Masters in Management Technology (MMT) at De La Salle Lipa are about to graduate on June 9, 2017 a research colloquium was organized by the DLSL graduate school committee headed by its chairperson, Dr. Winnie Dimaano, on June 3, Saturday. 

As an introduction, Dr. Alice Botardo, Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research gave her welcome remarks to all the guests and colloquium pariticipants while congratulating the batch 36 of MMT as they are about to complete their masters degree. Meanwhile, guest speaker, Dr. Emilina Sarreal from the De La Salle University, shared their universitys thrust in ethical research.

With the theme Breaking Through Excellence in Managing People, Process and Performance the ten graduating students presented their most recent research papers in the field of management.  Topics varied depending on the industry affiliation of the students.

Three students presented their research paper in the plenary.  Engr. Randolf Mendoza, Unit Manager of HGST Philippines, (semi-con manufacturing company) presented the factors affecting HGST employees intention and behavior to use data analytics in their line of work. Christine Aguila, who has worked in various multi-national companies, presented a model that can measure the success of a business continuity plan in the Philippines. Lastly, Wendy Bautista, public relations manager of SM City Lipa, presented the effects of shopping mall brand experience and brand personality to customer satisfaction and loyalty.

After the plenary, the audience was divided into three as the parallel presenters simultaneously conferred with the attendees in three different venues their research papers.  In one group, Myrla Erika Carandang, human resource supervisor of Scopeworks Asia (BPO), presented the relationship between leader-member exchange, job satisfaction and turnover among the employees of Scopeworks. Reman Eric Recio, whose family is involved in realty development, conducted a research on the relationship between the profiles of low-cost housing buyers versus their attitudes and intent to avail sustainable products for their home.  Jane Cadano, human resource and admin supervisor in a processing company, analyzed the effect of employee development to organizational commitment of DLSL faculty. 

In the second group, Janine Vergara, who is a public relations secretary at Batangas Electric Cooperative (BATELEC), determined the impact of the response of BATELECs frontliners on customer satisfaction.  Nathalie Zara, a teller of PS Bank in Manila discussed the factors influencing usage of e-banking. 

In the third group, Lanilyn Marino, assistant section manager at Ibiden Philippines (electronics manufacturing company) and an independent financial advisor discussed the effects of personal financial distress to job productivity. Janine Baronia, whose family is involved in managing apartments, assessed the apartment occupants perceived quality, customer satisfaction and intention to complain.  

The colloquium was attended by students of DLSLs graduate and undergraduate schools and served as prelude to future researchers.  In her closing remarks, Ms. Lani Garachico, Dean of the College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management (CBEAM) intimated her appreciation of the colloquium, its organizers and presentors, I am proud to say that this (colloquium) is a success.  This is the first of more and bigger colloquiums to come.





New Lipa Archbishop on His First Eucharistic Celebration at DLSL
De La Salle Lipa's Grade 6 completers were lucky to have the newest Lipa Archbishop, His Excellency, Arch. Gilbert Garcera, DD, to lead the thanksgiving mass on June 1, 2017 at the Capilla de San Juan Bautista de La Salle.

Attendees, composed of administrators, faculty members, parents and students, were all ears as they listen to the first homily at DLSL by the archbishop who hails from Camarines Sur. His words to the young ones were full of wisdom and served as the best reminder to students what truly matters and how they could achieve it in their own way.

Although academic achievements are admirable fruits of one's labor, the newly appointed Lipa Archbishop urged the 277 Grade 6 completers to prepare for the grand graduation - salvation. To reach the ultimate destination, he related DLSL's tagline of "Driving What's Next" to pick the ideal phase. "Don't drive too fast" was his tip and that they should only allow one driver to lead them - Jesus Christ.

Arch. Garcera confirmed how fortunate the young Lasallians because the "gospel is about Jesus praying for us," good news, indeed.

Lastly, he strongly advised the students to thank their parents and commended the DLSL community for holding the Eucharistic celebration as it is an expression of gratitude while it echoes the gratitude of Jesus Christ.




DLSL Hosts PCPGE's Conference on Human Rights
De La Salle Lipa, Regional Center for Peace Education, hosted the Philippine Council for Peace and Global Education's (PCPGE) general assembly and conference, which served as a perfect venue to talk about a serious issue in the country - human rights.

PCPGE President and DLSL Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research (VCAR), Dr. Alice Botardo, welcomed the group members and guests from different schools and institutions who turned up on May 22, 2017 at the Sen. Jose Diokno Auditorium. She provided a brief background of PCPGE, which was founded in 1979 by Dr. Lourdes Quisumbing, and shared the fundamental and longstanding purpose of it - to give voice and empower for truth, justice and peace.

Empowering meant educating the people with pertinent data and amplifying their knowledge of the law that was designed to protect the victims and not mislead the ignorant nor serve as a scapegoat for violators. This was the gist of the presentation of resource speaker, Atty. Jose Manuel Diokno, De La Salle University College of Law Dean and son of the late Sen. Jose Diokno, founding chair of the Commission on Human Rights and founder of the Free Legal Assistance Group.

The speaker's insightful researches on crucial information that contribute to the unjustifiable human rights violations proved that they remain unresolved and worse, continue to prevail. Moreover, his compelling statement that "There will never be enough discussion on human rights" is a testament that the issue will drag on indefinitely and that the Filipinos' rudimentary "concept of justice and human rights" will not help improve the precarious state of the nation.

But to wallow in despair is not an option. Atty. Diokno offered counters and solutions that are feasible but would require vigilance and action from the Filipinos.

Discourse on countermeasures continued courtesy of the next speaker, Dr. Virginia Cagawas, Adjunct Professor at the University of Alberta, as she presented "Critical and Transformative Pedagogies for a Culture of Peace." The prolific author dissected national and global concerns on crises and contradictions.

Dr. Cagawas elucidated that physical violence, structural violence, human rights violations, cultural violence, violence on the environment, and lack of inner peace are only some of the daily ordeals that people tend to ignore like the "elephant in the room."

Educational institutions play a key role in "building a culture of peace" through "transformative education." An example of which is the "pedagogical principles in peace education," which may use dialogical creative pedagogies in the form of group analysis, conflict mapping, storytelling, community engagement, to name a few.

As an initial concrete step of the attendees, they were divided into small groups and collaboratively addressed certain issues. After which, they had a presentation of outputs containing the proposed action plans. Finally, the expression of commitment fittingly capped the one-day conference.




DLSL Celebrates the Founder's Day: Patron Saint of Christian Teachers
The De La Salle Lipa community began its day on May 15, 2017 with a heartfelt veneration to the founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle.

In commemoration of the proclamation by Pope Pius XII on the very same day in 1950 declaring the founder as the Patron Saint of Christian Teachers, the DLSL family in their green shirt, commenced the celebration with a Holy Mass, attended by select students.

It was followed by a prayer service to signal the enthronement of his image, a portrait which now adorns a prominent place in each classroom on campus.

Subsequently, Lasallian Partners continued the event in the afternoon with a Eucharistic celebration at the Capilla de San Juan Bautista de La Salle, led by Fr. Eugene Hechanova. The St. Francis Minor Seminary Rector summed up the gospel with three words: childlikeness, humility, and greatness; the characteristics that the founder possessed.

Symbolic offerings were made in honor of St. La Salle: Bible - for spirit of faith; Plant - for spirit of zeal for service; and Star - for spirit of communion in mission.

And to conclude a significant celebration among Lasallians that befits a patron saint who made a revolutionary contribution in the field of education, the DLSL family shared a feast together and bonded over the inspiration that the founder has left behind.

This network infrastructure project was granted to TTI last April 25, 2017 and the project installation is expected to be completed by August 21, 2017.  This will provide the platform of DLSL's digital campus initiative to assure that buildings within the campus are interconnected with the installation of a resilient network which is independent to power source instability.  It will also provide a multi-channel communication for DLSL Partners and support staff. 

The kick-off event was attended by DLSL top administrators led by Br. Dante Amisola FSC, DLSL President and Chancellor, along with the members of the DLSL Executive Council, and top executives of Trends and Technologies, Inc., headed by Chairman Hasan Fard and Avaya Philippines Country Manager, Ed Doctolero.

DLSL Chief Librarian Shares Expertise in Fora
Always ready to extend help and support in response to the needs of libraries and information center in academic and government libraries in select areas of CALABARZON, the Chief Librarian, Lilian Rabino, shared her knowledge, expertise, and experience in her field of work.  

Her initial speaking engagement for the school year 2016-2017 took place on September 8, 2016 when the Librarians Association of Quezon Province-Lucena (LAQuep-LInc) invited her on their 10th Year Founding Anniversary at St. Jude Multi-Purpose Cooperative, Coop Hotel and Event Center, Tayabas City. Rabino focused on the topic "Transforming Libraries: Valuing Best Practices." 

Her next stint was followed by a presentation on "Training on the Management of Mobile Library." It was an eventful gathering that was appreciated by the Municipality of Rosario, Province of Batangas last February 20, 2017. It brought municipal workers of Rosario ideas on how to implement Bookmobile project for the identified barangays. Basic organization and management of Bookmobile materials and how to make it functional were comprehensively discussed with the participants.

A month after, March 20, 2017, through the initiative of LRMDS team, the Chief Librarian was invited by the group of teacher-librarians and principals of the DepEd-Division of Batangas and supported the quest of DepEd to establish Learning Centers in all schools as stipulated in DO no.6, s 1998. She discussed  "Establishing Linkages, Creating Librarie ".

Rabino considered it an immense honor and privilege to assist and equip other librarians and teachers the necessary skills and knowledge in managing learning resource centers, mentor them in organizing materials the simplest way, give them insights on the importance of libraries and librarians, provide them tips in planning fun and engaging activities for students, and build linkages among different organizations for their libraries to fully function.

DLSL's Digital Campus Innovation for the Ultimate Client Experience
As the institution embarks on a digital frontier, members of the DLSL community are engaged in the development and progress of the project that will greatly benefit everyone.  Changes and repercussions have been discussed initially to multi-sector representatives while other members are taking turns in partaking in town hall meetings to acquire the necessary information related to their area.

The recent assembly was composed of around 600 student leaders from the colleges, led by the Student Government and the Council for Student Organization at the SENTRUM on March 15, 2017. 

Chief Strategy and Advancement Officer (CSAO), Arnold Capuloy, initiated the meeting by presenting the improvements underway, followed by the Chief Technology and Innovation Officer, Jose Orlando Lozada, who provided a walk-through of the institution's Digital Campus Framework.

From pre- to post-engagement, De La Salle Lipa's Digital Campus project will deliver optimized services through an innovative channel to achieve total client experience.

The CTIO underscored the highlights such as the Learning Management System (LMS), which will be the core of the academe's platform in virtual interaction between teachers and students through video conference, email, personal message and chat; centralized source of information and education; and utilization of blended learning, to name a few. LMS will take education to new heights, as learning practically takes place anytime and anywhere.

Another focus of the Digital Campus that was discussed was the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). This will allow students to bring their own gadget to access LMS or other online platforms for education without requiring the purchase of a specific brand of device or operating system due to DLSL's device-agnostic network. 

Another new feature to be introduced in the next school year is the Network Electronic Transaction plus ID System (Next plus ID). This enhances security features on campus as it reports the exact time a student enters and exits the school premises. Students that are not enrolled in a particular subject cannot access the classroom or venue.  It could be used for cashless transactions in the cafeteria, bookstore and the like. Embedded in the existing function is the library access. 

Meanwhile, President and Chancellor, Br. Dante Jose Amisola FSC, was also in attendance and readily answered queries and addressed students' concerns. 

As the Digital Campus project is underway, more updates will be communicated to the DLSL community for the progress and any modifications.

DLSL Confers Semper Fidelis Award to Br. Armin Luistro FSC
Semper Fidelis, which literally means always faithful, is the newest recognition that De La Salle Lipa has recently bestowed upon a deserving recipient who happens to be a De La Salle Brother, alumnus, and Lipeno, Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC.

The Semper Fidelis Award (SFA) "is the highest award given by De La Salle Lipa to an individual committed to its strategic intents of educating for equity and justice and educating for sustainable and inclusive development. It acknowledges that stakeholder's support and engagement to the institution's achievements of its targets that are highly valued and treasured. De La Salle Lipa would like to recognize the meritorious contributions of external partners in pursuit of its mission to give quality human and Christian education to all, building a society founded on equity and justice, and sustainable and inclusive development."

The former Department of Education Secretary was conferred DLSL's ultimate recognition for being "a distinguished advocate for inclusive and innovative education in the Philippine educational system; exercising bold, courageous and visionary leadership; faithfully exemplifying the philosophy, principles, values and practices of De La Salle Lipa; and contributing substantially to diversity and excellence in Philippine education."

In fact, organizations have expressed their agreement as he was described by the Coordinating Council of Private Educational Associations (COCOPEA) in their citation to Br. Armin as "the one who significantly disrupted the education sector" and "the man who made the elephants dance," for accomplishing the impossible.

A quote from Br. Armin is a strong testament of his motivation in his pursuit of excellence, "We should not lose sight of the immense power of reason and intellect that academic institutions can easily harness to prohibit the full regression of this nation to a state of stupor."

Along with the handcrafted wooden plaque with a gold medal that was presented by the DLSL President and Chancellor, Br. Dante R. Amisola FSC, an endowment worth Php 100,000.00 will be named after the awardee to mark his valuable contribution to De La Salle Lipa in perpetuity.

The awarding ceremony coincided with the opening of his homecoming exhibit titled "Journey 61:16" on February 24, 2017 at the College Learning Resource Center.

With around 200 members, the PCDEB is composed of administrators and professors teaching business courses in various colleges and universities nationwide. It has successfully carried out and continues to hold national conventions and fora for professional growth and strengthen linkages with the industry. It has been instrumental in bridging the gap between academic and industry practices.

DLSL Holds Blessing of Two New Facilities
Despite the gloomy weather, it never deterred the members of the De La Salle Lipa community to congregate with the Board of Trustees and Incorporators on September 14, 2016 for the blessing of the Sports Center and the Students Center.

In two successive events, the Lasallians gathered, initially, at the Sports Center - the first phase of the sports facility - which was flocked by its future users, the athletes and students.

The Vice Chancellor for Mission, Ms. Violeta Ramirez, gushed over the latest venue to host future practices and competitions. Meanwhile, one of the priests who officiated the blessing, Fr. Eugene Hechanova, gave an enlightening homily of the event. He called the ceremony as “sacramental” which relates to but not exactly a sacrament; it constitutes a blessing using holy water. In the Filipino culture, Fr. Eugene elucidated that it is a tradition in the country for a new structure to be blessed by a priest to drive away bad luck and attract good vibes.

Immediately after the first ceremony, guests and administrators proceeded to the three-storey Students Center, the new abode of the colleges' student leaders, the Student Activity Office, and the college publication office - LAVOXA.

The Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research, Dr. Alicia Botardo, expressed "sincerest gratitude" for "another fulfillment of a dream" as she addressed the attendees that also included a representative from Department of Education - Division of Lipa, Dr. Annie Atienza, and alumnus and Lipa City Councilor, Joel Pua.

At the last and succeeding blessing, Fr. Clarence Patag encouraged everyone to be open to God's graces as the new facilities of the institution have opened its doors to Lasallians.

Lasallians Celebrate Feast, Canonization of Blessed Br. Solomon
De La Salle Lipa joins the rest of the Lasallian family across the globe in celebration of the feast of Blessed Brother Solomon (Nicholas Leclerq) on September 2, while they await his canonization on October 16, 2016.

Below is a write-up from the Lasallian East Asia District regarding the soon-to-be-saint.

"Once the monarchy had been overthrown early in the French Revolution, the next target was the Church. In 1790 the Civil Constitution of the Clergy gave the state complete control over the Church in France. In order to continue to function, priests and religious were forced to take an oath to support the constitution. Most of the Brothers refused and so were forced gradually to abandon their schools and communities. Eventually the institute was deprived altogether of legal status in France.

Brother Solomon was secretary to Brother Agathon, the Superior General, after having been a teacher, director and bursar. He always showed a great love for people and a great attachment to his work. Having refused to take an oath, he lived alone in Paris in secrecy. We still have many of his letters to his family. The last one is dated August 15, 1792. That very day he was arrested and imprisoned in the Carmelite monastery, which had become a prison, together with several bishops and priests. On September 2, almost all the prisoners were killed by sword in the monastery garden. He was beatified on October 17, 1926, together with 188 of his fellow martyrs. He was the first one of our martyrs and also the first Brother to be beatified.

His feast is celebrated on September 2 with the other Brother martyrs of the hulks of Rochefort, who died 2 or 3 years later."

Born at Boulogne, France November 14, 1745
Entered the novitiate March 25, 1767
Martyred September 2, 1792
Beatification: October 17, 1926
Canonization: October 16, 2016




DLSL ICA Student Chefs Bag Awards in Pro Competition
A head to head competition with professional, amateur and fellow student chefs from the country's leading restaurants, hotels and schools motivated the De La Salle Lipa Institute of Culinary Arts contestants to prove that they were a force to be reckoned with.

They may have limited experience and exposure, but the the young Lasallian chefs were never deterred to face even the seasoned challengers they bested at the Philippine Culinary Cup 2016 held at the SMX Convention Center on August 3-6, 2016.

This year, DLSL's student contestants earned three bronze medals in different categories with the guidance of their coaches.

In the Young Chef's Team Challenge, coached by Chef Pamela De Leon, Student Contestant, Jude Wilson C. Desipeda, prepared an appetizer dubbed, "Fruits of the Sea Medley." The winning mouth-watering entry was a variety of three distinct fish and seafood dishes. First dish was made-up of dragon fruit rice crispy with quenelle of smoked salmon mousse. Another preparation was a pan fried breaded mussel topped with assorted micro-greens with homemade lemon and garlic mayonnaise sauce. The last of the variety was a cocktail-sized pate choux filled with mango salsa pastry cream topped with pan-grilled shrimp.

Under the same category and mentor, the scrumptious winning entre, "Honey Molasses Glazed Chicken Ballotine," by Lauren James L. Alilio, lured the judges to her dish of poached, deboned chicken leg quarter, stuffed with mixture of bleu cheese, cream cheese, Edam cheese, tarragon and pistachio. To compliment the dish, the starch used was malange of blanched squash, chopped, smoked eggplant and thinly sliced, blanched lady finger. It was garnished with micro greens (lollo rossa and arugula), julienned bell pepper, mountain apple (macopa), and orange pulp and zest, and finally completed with tarragon glaze.

For the Local Fish or Seafood Challenge, Student Contestant, Bryle Kenneth M. Corachea and coached once again by Chef Pamela De Leon, featured "Tulingan de Parma." The delectable concoction of the Tulingan confit was cooked over butter, olive oil, lemon juice, parsely and garlic; while the special blended sauce enhanced the local favorite of Pinoys with spicy creamy pomodoro and tapenade. Deep-fried, cubed taro and sweet potato added texture as the dish was garnished with cherry tomatoes, wild cucumber, morning glory and pennywort (takip kohol).

In another category, Pasta Challenge, by Student Contestant, Ruby Ann M. Mendoza, and Coach Chef Jayson Dimaculangan, dubbed, "Pimiento-Olivo Lasagna Roulade," the young chef presented a duo stuffed lasagna dish. Stuffing was made-up of pan-grilled oregano infused prawns and sauteed bell pepper with black olives and cream cheese. Additional flavor of pomodoro and salsa verde were added. Homemade saffron bread sticks were used for garnish to make it more visually appetizing.

Compliments are also extended to other participants, namely, Raechelle AnneAmar and Ivan Lewis Mercado, who joined Corachea in the Filipino Cuisine Challenge, with Coach Chef Jayson Dimaculangan.

DLSL Hosts CBOL
De La Salle Lipa's Sports Office, in collaboration with the Student Government, hosted the College Basketball Open League (CBOL) open to interested college students from different colleges.

This league, which started on June 29, 2016, was organized to offer worthwhile programs for the extra two-month break due to the school’s decision to shift the academic calendar, starting classes in August instead of July.

The commissioners of the league were Coach Pao Puertollano of the Sports Office, activity head, Raymond De Guzman and Joey Casas from the Student Government, while Robert Versoza oriented the players with the new rules established by FIBA.

DLSL Delegates at the Int'l Lasallian Leadership Program
De La Salle Lipa's Sports and Culture Director, Emily Babasa, and Research and Publications Director, Gina Dimaano, were among the participants of the 10th International Lasallian University Leadership Program, held June 5-18, 2016 at Casa La Salle, Generalate of the Brothers of the Christian Schools in Rome, Italy.

The annual event is intended for "university faculty and administration and is specifically designed to assist universities in their ongoing programs of faculty formation and enrichment . . . to integrate Lasallian charism into the college classroom and academic community," stated by Br. James Gaffney FSC, Chair of the Lasallian Association of College and University Presidents.

Participants were involved in various aspects of the program including classes, group work, retreat, prayer and socials while they tackled specific topics such as,"Future Societal Trends Impacting Higher Education and Envisioning the Future of Lasallian Higher Education."

In addition, Ms. Babasa shared another important objective of the program which was to "Develop a community through the immersion in the literature, history, modern innovation and culture of the Lasallian family" and recommended "to attend the IALU Leadership Program so that they can imbibe the true spirit of being a Lasallian Leader."




DLSL Bags Major Titles in MAFBEX 2016
In the 10th Manila Foods and Beverages Exposition (MAFBEX) Interschool Competition held June 8-12, 2016 at the World Trade Center, Manila, De La Salle Lipa's student representatives from the Hotel and Restaurant Management Department of the College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management won top awards.

Guided by this year's theme, "Elemental," entries in the Buffet Centerpiece Competition by the group members, Mikhaela Andrea M. Capuloy, Mariel M. Talde and Celeste T. Laqui (alternate), with coach Chef Patrick Henry Maravilla; and the Cooking Demo by group members, John Anthony M. Monsod and Ramon Paolo J. Casas, with coach Evangeline M. Necio, were both adjudged champions. 

DLSL's group representative in the debut of Buffet Centerpiece category makes history as its first winner. The team's entry titled, "Gaea Terra Firma," was inspired by the primal Greek goddess, Gaea, one of the deities that governed the universe before the Titans . . . symbolized the Earth and represented Mother Earth. On the other hand, Terra Firma is a Latin phrase meaning solid Earth (from terra, meaning earth, and firma, meaning solid). The set-up is mainly composed of different representational objects that emphasized flora and fauna; the whole aspect of the Earth element.

In the Cooking Demo Competition, the group's entry, "Herb Crufted Salmon with Balsamic Reduction Sauce and Roasted Vegetable," captivated not only the palate of the judges but their vision as well. With the unique take on the presentation - as the salmon sits on the hot river stone - the judges could not believe their eyes. It was the key element that favored the team in their category.

Other participating schools in both categories were De La Salle University-Dasmarinas (second place), Philippine Women's University (third place), University of Santos Tomas, and the Asian Institute of Maritime School.

MAFBEX Interschool Competition is in partnership with DLS-CSB School of Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management (SHRIM) Young Hoteliers Exposition, a subsidiary of Worldbex Services International (WOFEX).

DLSL Holds PAHINA Culmination, Forges Ties with Aeta Community
The Community Involvement Office, in partnership with NSTP's Lingkod Lasalyano, a college student organization, hosted the culminating activity of the PAHINA Program last April 13, 2016 at the Sen. Diokno Auditorium. 

The PAHINA (PAgbasa para sa HINaharap ng mga Aeta/bata) Program, a Literacy Project which was initially funded by the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge, UK, aims at establishing mini-libraries within communities in much need of said resources, and following it through with literacy sessions that aims to improve the reading skills and comprehension of the identified student group of the community.  The first beneficiary of which were the nine grade 2 students of the Aeta Tribal Community at Barangay Puting Kahoy in Rosario, Batangas.

The program was implemented in several stages: starting off with a book drive where more than 1300 books were collected, plastic covering of the donated books, a clean-up drive wherein the Day Care Center that will house the mini-library corner was cleaned, painted and linoleum flooring replaced, the literacy/reading sessions held at the tribal community, and capping the program off with a culminating ceremony in recognition of the participation and improvement in the reading capabilities of the students.

During said ceremony, almost 40 members of the tribe graced the occasion, showcasing tribal performances of dancing, cultural traditions and clothing.  Each grade 2 participant then was awarded a certificate in recognition of their participation in the program.  Three students, Lorraine, Jolina and Jericho, then each read to the audience an excerpt from their chosen story books after a video documentation of their initial reading capabilities were shown, highlighting the improvement in their reading skills.

It was followed through with a Memorandum of Agreement Signing between De La Salle Lipa, through the school president, Br. Kenneth S. Martinez, FSC DMin and Ms. Violeta D. Ramirez, the Vice Chancellor for Mission, and the Aeta Tribal Community of Rosario Batangas, through the representations of Barangay Councilors Rosenda Pasia and Calixto Briones Jr. in behalf of Barangay Captain Rowel Gamab and Mayor Manuel B. Alvarez of the municipality of Rosario.

The Memorandum of Agreement, known as the De La Salle Lipa - Indigenous Peoples Partnership Program (IPPP), solidifies the partnership of DLSL with the Aeta Tribal Community of Barangay Puting Kahoy in Rosario which aims at implementing collaborative programs and activities that will improve the social and economic well-being of the community.

DLSL MMT Held Convention on Environmental Management and Technology
De La Salle Lipa's (DLSL) Master in Management Technology (MMT) Student Government conducted the MMT Convention (MMT Con) 2016, a gathering of subject matter experts (SMEs) on environmental management and technology, March 5, Saturday, 8AM to 5PM, at the Diokno Auditorium, DLSL.

Themed as "Going Sustainable and Global: Living the Animo in Business", the said convention aimed to promote awareness on sustainable development, technological innovations and best practices. The following speakers graced the event:  Ann Hazel Javier, the Executive Director of Pusod, Inc.; Engr. Aisa Mijeno, CEO and Co-Founder of Sustainable Alternative Lighting (SALt); Burn Gutierrez, Chairman of Angat Pilipinas Coalition for Financial Literacy / Blogger; Paolo Lising, Founder of Million Dollar Concepts (social media platform for entrepreneurs); Rodel Lacorte, CEO and President of Taza Mia Corporation; and Jourdan Sebastian, Chief Evangelist Officer of Taclob, a social enterprise developing eco-friendly and floating backpacks.

Sustainable Development as Core Driver of Change
Ann Hazel Javier, via live Skype conference, shared about how Pusod, an environmental non-government organization from Mataas Na Kahoy, does permaculture (an agricultural and social design system focusing on simulating patterns noticed in natural ecosystems). Meanwhile, Engr. Aisa Mijeno showcased SALt – how the salt lamp works, their startup’s latest developments as well as tips for startups aiming to make a difference in their respective fields and in the Philippines. At the latter part of the program, Jourdan Sebastian highlighted on Taclob, a social enterprise equipping, educating and empowering Taclobanons as they recover from Typhoon Yolanda mishaps. Taclob allows typhoon survivors to rebuild their livelihood by creating "Compassion" and "Courage" bags. These "disaster-resilien" bags are made from pre-loved jeans from Germany and from upcycled Japanese tarpaulin – making these bags weather-proof and eco-friendly.

Leveraging on Technology for Business
To center on how businesses can utilize technology, specifically the Internet, two speakers, Burn Gutierrez and Paolo Lising, shared about being an online entrepreneur as well as how social media can boost one’s business (with best practices from Million Dollar Concepts, a social media platform for entrepreneurs), respectively. Gutierrez also emphasized on the various techniques to earn online (from affiliate marketing, selling, writing, and lots more). Meanwhile, Lising pointed on the importance of having a viable digital marketing strategy, especially since the Internet, specifically social media networks, have already become a viable platform for businesses and customers alike.

Going "Glocal"
To stress on how a local coffee brand such as Taza Mia has made it to the scene, Rodel Lacorte, the company's President and CEO, emphasized on going "glocal". According to Lacorte, this concept has been adopted by their company as they strive to provide a global strategic direction together with the adaptability to local requirements and opportunities. Challenged to face the "big boys" in their industry, Taza Mia continues to differentiate itself from them through such strategy.

Master in Management Technology's 20th Year, 36th Batch
The convention likewise served as the culminating activity of the MMT program – having produced 36 batches on its 20th year. Having started in 1996 by the late former President Br. Rafael Donato (as its Dean) and then-Assistant Dean Sanny Leviste, MMT continues to educate and empower its students with core management skills and knowledge as well as the use of technology relevant in business.

Graphika Manila Features DLSL Artist, Student
De La Salle Lipa Multimedia Arts (MMA) Batch 2015, magna cum laude, Patricia D. Molinyawe, and MMA fourth year student, John Michael R. Bucal, made headlines at the Graphika Manila 2016 as both made it to this year's book on featured artists.

Both the products of creativity and artistry of Molinyawe, Marketing Communications' Multimedia Assistant, and Bucal, graduating student, were handpicked and recently published in the annual issue of the Graphika Book. The organizers mentioned that "artists from the Philippines and around the world" participated in the annual search. There was no theme or topic to observe, nor specific software to use. Artists had the liberty to go freestyle with any subject under the sun.

In the case of Molinyawe, her artwork, titled, "A Colorful Chaos," was produced through the Adobe illustrator software. She explained that her artwork "relates to what I'm feeling in my life right now. Each color corresponds to a certain mood, and even though they're all mixed up and tangled with each other, I still find a way to make them look beautiful and work as a whole. My artwork is me. I am my Artwork. Doing something artsy especially drawing and coloring gives me that satisfaction and feeling good about myself which eases me up whenever I feel stressed or even when I'm bored." This was her second time to be featured while the first was back in 2015.

Bucal's selected entry, on the other hand, was the renowned boxer, Manny Paquioa, aptly titled, "People's Champ." Through Adobe photoshop and his tool graphics tablet, he managed to create the face of the Filipino boxer. For his part, Bucal shared, "[I] painted with the colors of our Philippine flag. This portrait is a tribute [in a form of an] art for the man who has brought glory to our country."

The Graphika Book is a collection of artworks which showcases the talent of professional and budding artists, and provides an opportunity to make a name in the same field. The book was launched during the annual Graphika Manila conference.

DLSL Community Celebrates Wild West-Themed Christmas
A bull ride, a saloon facade as backdrop, grilled and roasted meats on one side, and with employees donned in cowboy and cowgirl outfits, there was no doubt that the ambience was utterly wild west. 

But right before all the merriment and festivities, the special occasion fittingly commenced with a Misa de Gallo on the night of the institutional Christmas celebration on 18 December 2015 at the Capilla De San Juan Bautista De La Salle.  

The inviting aroma of roasted pork and cattle welcomed the arrival of the school community which immediately marked the beginning of another promising and memorable party. 

President and Chancellor, Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. shared his yuletide message to officially start the program. The Brother President reminded everyone that Christmas is not only for kids for it is a shared celebration that serves as a reminder that Jesus came and lived amongst the young and old alike.

Aside from the usual raffle prizes, courtesy of the suppliers and partners, the annual gathering was highlighted with the season's "coopetition" patterned after the famous show "Your Face Sounds Familiar."

The following contestants and celebrity they imitated, Lerma Castro aka Charisse Pempengco - Pyramid, Criselda Roldan aka Justin Bieber - Baby, Vanessa Tattao aka Tina Turner - What's Love Got to Do, Issa Malaluan aka Britney Spears - Oops, I did it Again, Nora Sarmiento aka Ed Sheeran- Thinking Out Loud, Jake Bigcas aka Francis Magalona - Mga Kababayan Ko, and Rhea Sabaybay aka Yeng Constantino - Chinito, made every one's night with their most convincing performance of their assigned artist.

Invited alumni judges, Franco Dimayuga, Cir Anton Garing, and Mariya Ina Franchesca Joves, gamely shared their thoughts on their top three contestants and adjudged Issa Malaluan as the winner. The unmistakable doppelganger of Britney Spears and her rendition of the pop singer's hit song - Oops, It Did It Again - won her the title.

DLSL Hails New "Gawad Alumni"
In rare occasions when the Brothers get to congregate with the alumni, together with their loved ones and the people from the distant past as they take a trip down memory lane, chances are the De La Salle Lipa community has finally found its next rightful recipient of the Gawad Alumni or the Blessed Brother Arnould Reche FSC Distinguished Alumni Award.

On the eve of August 26, 2015, an intimate affair took place for the special awarding ceremony at the Board Room, Sen. Jose Diokno Hall to formally bestow the award to an alumnus from High School Batch 1983 who took the time to receive the title despite his brief visit to the country and his very busy schedule.

Currently on his second term as the Council General of the Oblates of Saint Joseph General Curia in Rome, Italy, in-charge of the lay movement of the whole congregation, the 2015 awardee is Rev. Fr. Gabriel Gerardo Masilungan Kamus.

Alumnus, Fr. Gabriel, could not contain the overwhelming joy he exuded during the ceremony as he made sure to thank, not only his Lasallian family, but likewise, his Oblates of St. Joseph congregation, too.

He could attest that he had enjoyed and benefited from both worlds, and even related to the case of the founder, St. John Baptist De La Salle, who happened to be the only priest in their ministry.

He also thanked his family, especially his mother, 88 years old, who witnessed the event - the occasion that he will surely treasure, and the award that will constantly remain precious to him.




DLSL H.O.N.O.R Society Pioneers First BHSS
De La Salle Lipa H.O.N.O.R Society hosted the very first Batangas Honor Students' Summit (BHSS) last August 26, 2015 at the MMR 7, Brother Benilde Building. "Celebrating the Love of Learning" was the theme of this interactive seminar which was intended for high school students who are in the honor roll of their respective schools. The said event was joined by Lyceum of the Philippines University - Batangas, Padre Vicente Garcia Memorial Academy, University of Batangas, Fernando Air Base National High School, Dacanlao Gregorio Agoncillo National High School and De La Salle Lipa Integrated School.

The event kicked-off with an opening prayer and the singing of the Philippine National Anthem led by the De La Salle Voices. Hosts, Szia Darene Martin and Joseph Paulo Silva formally opened the summit while Roberto Marcelo Jr., adviser of the DLSL H.O.N.O.R. Society, gave the participants a short background of the event's objectives and program flow. It was then followed by the opening remarks of the Senior High School Coordinator, Rene Villanueva, who talked about the future opportunities of the students after the K-12 program. The participants learned more about the various academic strands included in the program. He also gave the picture of the current scenario in the country's basic education and explained how DepEd's new program can uplift the quality of education present in the country.

Speakers of the said event were alumni of the host school and the first one who pitched in her journey as an achiever was April Joy Marquez, a magna cum laude of Batch 2014 and recognized as one of the 30 national finalists in the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP). She shared her experiences in time management and juggling academic responsibilities both as a student and an active Youth for Christ (YFC) member. After hearing her inspiring stories, the students were given the opportunity to ask her questions and guidance which she positively entertained.

The morning session ended with a lunch break alongside the performances of Musikalista and some volunteer participants. It was then followed by a panel discussion wherein Rizaldy Luistro, former Student Government president of school year 2013-2014 and Fleurdelyn Garing, RN, a magna cum laude who placed eighth spot in the previous nursing licensure examination, served as the panelists. The two were joined by the previous speaker, Ms. Marquez.

Each one of them was given ample time to speak and motivate the participants on how could they also achieve success at their very young age. Students also got the chance to seek advice from them through an open forum. One of the major concerns tackled by the speakers and participants were balancing academic duties and extra-curricular activities simultaneously. Furthermore, the participants enjoyed the ice-breakers prepared by the organizers wherein they were able meet new friends from other schools. 

The panel discussion ended with the awarding of certificates to all the speakers of the summit. A closing remark by Mr. King Martin U. Agoncillo, President of DLSL H.O.N.O.R. Society, and a prayer lead by Elaine Lorilla, Secretary of DLSL H.O.N.O.R. Society, formally ended the program. Participants of the event proceeded to the DLSL coaster for a tour around the campus with the help of the volunteer tourism students highlighting the College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management (CBEAM) building, College Resource and Learning Center (CLRC) and the DLSL Retreat Complex. Participants were also amazed with the architectural features of the DLSL Capilla and some of them decided to stay there for a while to pray.

Engr. Mijeno's Phenomenal SALt
De La Salle Lipa's alumna, Batch 2006, Engr. Aisa Mijeno, continue to make wave with her groundbreaking invention - SALt or Sustainable Alternative Light lamp.

After its initial local recognition by Idea Space 2014, SALt lamp inevitably drew more attention, while more awards ensued.

But the product was not created merely to gain citation. In fact it comes as a bonus, to propagate and invite investors to fund the mass production of the lamp and help more people in dire need of it.

SALt lamp came to life after a thorough and careful study of how Mijeno could help the marginalized communities living without electricity, consequently, light.

She discovered through immersion, after a stint with Greenpeace Philippines, that residents in the mountains, remote and coastal areas have been highly dependent on the use of kerosene or candle as source of light. Unfortunately, the very same products pose health risk, injury, fire, and even death.

Together with co-founder and brother of Mijeno, Raphael, and with the assistance of fellow advocates, they have launched a mission for the next three years to provide a free lamp to every family in need in exchange of every lamp that will be sold.

They are seeking a partnership with Non-Government Organizations, Local Government Units, and foundations to sustain the program, to benefit more families, and free them from all the imminent danger that currently surrounds these marginalized communities.

Taking to heart SALt lamp's tagline, "This isn't just a product, it's a social movement," Mijeno designed the lamp to be "cost effective, safe, environmentally friendly, and easy to use." It only requires a simple solution - a combination of two tablespoons of salt and a glass of tap water - that is all it takes for the lamp to work. 

Thus, the undeniable potential of the lamp has reached other parts of the country and even off shore, resulting in more awards and recognition from the following: Kotra Award - Startup Nations Summit 2014, South Korea; People's Choice Award - Startup Nations Summit 2014, South Korea; ASEAN SME Sustainability Commitment - ACSSA 2015, Philippines, Innovation for Impact - ADB x Ideaspace 2015, Philippines; Asia Entrepreneurship Award 2015, Japan; Echelon Top 100 Asia Summit 2015, Singapore; and National Research Foundation TechVenture 2015, Singapore.

New Breed of Math Wiz Studes Reap Awards in IMWiC
De La Salle Lipa is delighted to introduce a new batch of Math wiz students poised to follow the footsteps of their predecessors and current members of their powerhouse varsity team as they made their own mark in the 2015 International Mathematics Wizard Challenge (IMWiC) held in Hong Kong on August 9-12, 2015.

Marc Christopher Ferrer (Grade 8) - Silver Medalsit, Angeline Mae Precilla (Grade 8) - Silver Medalist, Andre Jerahmy Amante (Grade 5) - Bronze Medalist, Ruben Joseph Felix (Grade 2) - Merit Award, Ron Gian Aleksei Catibog (Grade 8) - Merit Award, and Lanz Lorenzo Bosita (Grade 9) - participant, made their school and country proud as they join the bandwagon of DLSL's elite Math core group, reaping medals and citation, left and right.

As part of the Philippine delegation, the young Lasallians contributed in the second place overall ranking of the country which garnered 138 medals and 63 merit awards.

The DLSL community could never be happier with the winning streak that the Math Varsity Team is enjoying right now, after training hard; they surely deserve all the compliments. This is also made possible by the undying support of the parents and the guidance of the equally hardworking trainers.




DLSL Hails Recent CPA Passers
Shortly after four years of completing their degree in Accountancy plus further review, De La Salle Lipa's alumni have finally put their knowledge to the test during the May 2015 Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination.

The most recent schedule was held in the cities of Manila, Baguio, Cagayan De Oro, Davao, Ilo-Ilo, and Legazpi where a total of 5,959 hopefuls took the exam and 2,132 successfully made it.

DLSL garnered 52.17% versus the national passing 35.78%.

Earning a degree in Accountancy is an achievement by itself, but passing the licensure exam cements their qualification in their future career. Thus, the DLSL community commends this batch of CPA passers.

DLSL Gathers for the Mass of the Holy Spirit
To fittingly commence the new school year, the De La Salle Lipa community held four celebrations of the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the SENTRUM to seek guidance and inspiration.

On June 22, pupils from Grades 3-6 took part in the initial installment of the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, led by Fr. Joel Villanueva who reminded the young Lasallians on how they originally received the Holy Spirit through the sacrament of Baptism. He encouraged them to constantly listen and follow the Holy Spirit to show how much they love God and to make Him proud.

Grades 7-10 students participated in the second part held June 23. Alumnus, Fr. Antonio Umali was the celebrant who shared to the junior high school students the role of the Holy Spirit as the true inspiration and guide for them; and encouraged to achieve their goal to learn, as their role as students.

On June 24, the third and the last day of the Mass of the Holy Spirit, held in the morning and afternoon, coincided with the Solemnity of the Birth of St. John the Baptist, one of the two similar occasions commemorated in a year, according to Fr. Darwin De Leon. The Holy Mass he celebrated in the morning was participated in by the first batch of college students, along with the Senor High School students. Fr. Darwins homily urged the young Lasallians to pray for virtues that they should possess, gifts from the Holy Spirit that are beyond mans intelligence.

The second batch of the college students took part in the last installment of the Mass in the afternoon, dubbed by Fr. Russel Matuloy as the Pentecost Mass. Attendees easily related to the homily as the priest elaborated on the definition of disciple in Latin discipulus which is learner. Fr. Russel challenged everyone to be life-long learners active, hard working, engaged in all aspects of learning; someone who sees mistakes and setbacks as mere challenges and not failures.


DLSL Revamps Tagline
Bolder, definitive and now a distinguished catchphrase, De La Salle Lipa's tagline "great beginnings start here . . ." had a makeover.

DLSL relaunched today, July 2, 2015 the edgier look of the tagline, an event that was witnessed by administrators and participated in virtually by the members of the community by sharing the new look in social media, dubbed #GreenDot.

From its former version which ended in ellipses, the new look emphatically concludes in a bold dot - unusually bigger to contain and showcase the various forms, locations, and areas where a member of the community could acquire learning in all means possible, across all channels, thus, the "Green Dot."

Looking back in 2011, at the time when the institution was conceptualizing a new tagline that will ultimately communicate the sincere intention of honing and producing able Lasallian students, a multi-sector Focus Group Discussion was held. And "Great Beginnings Start Here." was the end result of revisiting and re-affirming DLSL's commitment to its stakeholders.

De La Salle Lipa Brother's Community House
On June 14, 2015, the De La Salle Lipa Brother's Community House will be blessed by Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales, one of the original chaplains of the Brother's Community in 1962. Indeed, like all new structures in the school, the Brother's Community house is indeed a better place for the Brothers to pray, rest, re-create and reflect on their mission. Thank you for the school community that has made this possible!

We request that our community recognize and respect this area as separate and distinct from the rest of the school because it is a residence, thus, visitors, and employees are called to refrain from entering the area (starting at the driveway) unless specifically invited by the Brothers or by their guests who seek prior permission from the Brothers.

Thank you very much!

DLSL, DLSLAAI in Attendance at the Alumni World Congress
De La Salle Lipa and De La Salle Lipa Alumni Association, Inc. (DLSLAAI) attended the 10th One La Salle Alumni World Congress held on 22-24 May 2015 at Fontana Leisure Parks, Clark, Pampanga.  The school was represented by Br. Joaquin M. Martinez FSC, D.Min and PMO staff Marinette Lina, Donabel Orcena, Israel Tan and Dfezie Tipan.  Dr. Bienvenido Jose Panganiban, DLSLAAI President, headed the associations delegation composed of Jennylyn Dominguez, Atty. Maria Concepcion Hernandez-Beloso, Joel Pea, Creceleda Roldan and Gina Sabater.

The first day opened with a welcome cocktails hosted by De La Salle Alumni Association (DLSAA) Pampanga Chapter.  The event had been an opportune time to network and create linkages among Lasallians (alumni, school employees and La Salle Brothers).

Day two commenced with words from the Pampanga Chapter President and DLSU President Br. Ray Suplido FSC.  He was followed by Br. Jose Mari Jimenez FSC, Sector Head / President of De La Salle Philippines, who talked on the result of the recently concluded Philippine Lasallian Family Convocation 2015.  Br. JJ shared areas of priority of De La Salle Philippines leadership and formation, operational efficiency, accessibility and excellent education, which may serve as guide in making plans of different alumni associations and chapters.  It was followed by sharing of experiences of different alumni association chapters (Pampanga and Hong Kong).

Johnny Sy, immediate past president of DLSAA, introduced the idea of federating the different La Salle alumni associations of the Philippines and its objectives and importance.  He also shared the efforts made to form the federation.  On the same day, the federation was officially formed through an election. Sy was elected by different associations to become the president of Federation of La Salle Alumni Associations of the Philippines (FLSAAP) while the DLSAAI was elected as the secretary general.

The day activity ended with Brew with Bro and a celebration of the Holy Eucharist.  Brew with Bro is a roundtable sharing among Lasallians (alumni and La Salle Brothers) where the Brothers talked on their vocation and the rest shared their respective alumni activities in relation to the areas of priorities of DLSP.

After a day long exchanges of ideas and best practices, participants were treated to a military themed gala dinner.  All participants came in their military costume or military inspired outfit.  True Faith and Replay bands enlivened the night with their music.  Participants feasted on Kapampangan cuisine.  The congress ended on the third day with a continuation of experience of Kapampangan culture with a tour.



DLSL Institutional General Assembly: Shine [as] the Brightest Star in the Region
In the annual tradition of the institution and to mark the start of Academic Year 2015-2016, De La Salle Lipa held its annual Institutional General Assembly coinciding with the Feast of St. John Baptist De La Salle, May 15, 2015.

Rounding up more than 600 employees, the SENTRUM was once again packed with expectant employees awaiting the introduction of this years service awardees.

Prior to the recognition ceremony, President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin "Kenneth" Martinez FSC, D. Min. addressed the DLSL community to set the tone of the event and provide directions for the new school year. The Brother President and Chancellor presented the major accomplishments of the previous school year, the upcoming structures and programs to look forward to, and gave way to the inspirational message of DLSL's BAR Top 4 and CPA Top 2 alumnus and faculty member, Atty. Reginald Laco, CPA. Atty. Laco's tale of his humble beginnings to the fulfillment of his major achievements, and his profound expression of debt of gratitude to former mentors, teachers, and the school administrators, moved everyone to tears. For as long as he can teach, this young Lasallian will continue his mission to pay it forward, and to likewise see his students succeed and fulfill their dreams.

On his final note, Br. Kenneth, wished everyone not only longevity in service, but above all, a better quality of life, grow further as professionals, to attain or maintain good health, and for DLSL to conspicuously "shine [as] the brightest star in the region."

Navarro's BLP AMCHAM Feat
De La Salle Lipa's bet, 19-year-old, incoming senior AB Communications student, Pauline Laminero Navarro, was among the successful 30 hand-picked final participants in the national selection of the 13th Business Leadership Program by the American Chamber of Commerce (BLP AMCHAM).

Though initially the program's priority was to accommodate Business major students, recently, the organization opened its doors to qualified, outstanding junior college students from different degree programs which paved the way to Navarro's entry into the business world. 

With her excellent communications skills, the young Lasallian found her way through the meticulous scrutiny of varied and eclectic screening committees from commencement until the final panel interview.

The most enriching, fulfilling, and "eye-opening experience" summed-up her journey in the nine-day course held April 11-19, 2015.

Immersion in the country's leading companies, mentoring by top executives on their multiple presentations, a case study challenge by group, plus a certificate on Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC), were among her priceless exploits that will surely fill up her resume.

CIHTM Turn-Over Ceremony: Thankful and Honored
Dedicated and consistent with their annual commitment, the O.N.E. Tourism and BAFBEX 4D advisers and committee members from the Tourism and the Hotel and Restaurant Management Departments, together with their department heads, officially turned-over the proceeds of their respective projects to Herencia De La Salle on October 23, 2014 at the Yellow Room of the Sen. Jose Diokno Hall.

Each department donated PHP 50,000.00 with a sum of PHP 100,000.00 cash and delivered a heartwarming speech upon handing-over the mock checks to De La Salle Lipa President and Chancellor, Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. and Alumni Linkages and Advancement Officer, Israel Tan.

A student representative of HRM said that [they are] thankful and honored to continue the legacy that the first batch of organizers have started. She pointed out that their event BAFBEX 4D: Discover. Define. Deliver. Diversify, delivered a whole package of learning and a priceless experience they obtained brought about success after all their hardships.

Likewise, a Tourism student representative expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to reach out through their event O.N.E. Tourism: Opportunities, Network, Empowerment. Taking to heart the Lasallian mission of teaching minds, touching hearts, and transforming lives, they feel like they are on the right track of practicing this.

The proceeds from the College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management were all fruits of the labor of the two huge events that they organized and the Brother President commended them for their mutually beneficial programs. All their sleepless nights were not in vain. He was looking forward to another scholarship to be bestowed to a new grantee aside from an existing endowment that is currently being enjoyed by a student through their previous proceeds.  

The Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research Dr. Alicia Botardo expressed a heartfelt appreciation to all the people involved for successfully staging this years BAFBEX and Tourism events which she fearlessly predicted to have a potential to become national events soon. She acknowledged the CIHTM family for imbibing the culture of sharing and giving, despite all the challenges they faced in the process of organizing the events. She noted that the members of the committees never missed a mark on targeting and accomplishing their goals.

Aside from the student representatives, HRM Department Chair Evangeline Necio, Tourism Department Chair Andrenalyn Varona, LICA Head Chef Shirley De Jesus, and BAFBEX 4D Adviser Chef Patrick Maravilla were all on hand at the turn-over rites.








DLSL Unveils New Retreat Complex
A sprawling 8,800 square meters, or nearly a hectare of the Annex 2 land had been dedicated to De La Salle Lipas in-house formation facilities known as the Retreat Complex.

Back in February 2014, people gathered and witnessed the groundbreaking ceremony and eight months after, Lasallians and guests gathered anew on October 7, 2014, this time, for the blessing of the newest structures. 

It was just a dream, Vice Chancellor for Mission Violeta Ramirez gushed when she addressed the attendees of the blessing. She considers it a haven that will soon welcome the students to have their retreat, recollection, formation activity and institutional gathering.

DLSL's President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. agreed with the VCM saying [I] never thought we would have this. After the property was purchased by former DLSL president, Br. Manuel Pajarillo FSC, the mission was clear for the institution it was not only to provide a quality education but to sustain and strengthen the Christian education, the Brother President added. He likewise gave a hint that there is more to come because of the additional structures that will soon rise on the same area, such as the chapel, which will be located near the entrance, and very soon, the dormitory. He thanked Architects Tony Gutierrez, Jr. and Barry del Rosario responsible for the attractive design that is perfect for its purpose.

A large mess hall with an office space, kitchen and stockroom, as well as four session halls, and two sets of restroom facilities now stand on the property. An island amid the structures will soon accommodate the towering image of Mary Mediatrix that is close to eight feet, surrounded by an elaborate landscape to be designed by the school's landscape guru, Pilar Paredes.

Lasallians composed of the administrators, ILFO representatives, employees, and student leaders, together with the architects, Executive Director of Academe Foundation Sachie Reyes of Flying V chapels donor, Fr. Willy Jesena, C.Ss.R., Redemptorist Church representative and the priests who led the blessing Fr. Antotnio Umali, Fr. Bubot Hernandez, and Fr. Toter Rosuello, were all on hand to witness another milestone unfurl at the institution.

DLSL Unveils Region's Largest Library
Spanning 960 square meters, the ground floor alone of the new four-storey library building of De La Salle Lipa has 821 seating capacity. This is one of the outstanding features and only an installment of the modernization and expansion project of the institution's learning hub.

The building was blessed on September 4, 2014, in the presence of the Board of Trustees and Investors, student representatives, alumni, parents, and other stakeholders.

Administrators as well as the President and Chancellor, Br. Kenneth Martinez FSC, D. Min., took the lead in welcoming the guests and addressed them in his remarks for the occasion. Calling the new building as "the place" at the heart of the campus, he elaborated that it is an innovative way to entice students and to provide the next generation with world-class facilities.  

BOT Chair, Br. Ray Suplido FSC, congratulated DLSL's president and administrators for working together to provide the students with an excellent learning resource and underscored its significance. As he was glad to be a part of the planning stage of the big project, he was likewise delighted at the prospect of the enormous number of students that will benefit from it.

Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research, Dr. Alicia Botardo, thanked the La Salle Brothers for pioneering such quality of education in the country and even gave new meaning to the initials FSC as Family, Students and Community.

Chief Librarian, Lilian Rabino, was elated at the partial realization of a dream by the Brother President for the institution to establish a bigger and better facility and acquire a modern system that will maximize the resources of the library and efficiently serve the students and faculty.

As the founder of the Librarians' Association of Batangas and a current Board Member of the Philippine Librarians' Association - Southern Tagalog Region Librarians' Council, she can attest to the fact that so far, DLSL has the biggest and contemporary library in the Region IV-A with a total of 1,020 seating capacity, which includes the libraries of the Colleges of Law and Nursing located on the second floor of the same building.

Rabino explained that the ground floor will soon be fully furnished as soon as the imported tables, chairs, shelves, and couches are delivered to accommodate 821 students on the said floor, compared to the previous seating capacity of 661 which was a combination of all the college libraries.

All the shelves bearing all the collections will be placed at the mezzanine.

The new structure features as well nine discussion rooms, most of which are on the second floor. A new gallery on the same floor will house a collection of art works by budding and seasoned artists while the rest adorn the interiors. And for the library users' convenience, an elevator is available, as well as a comfort room on the first and second floors.

But aside from the physical structures, acquisition of modern technology is also in the horizon to further enhance the current system features. Relative to this, Rabino mentioned about the ongoing digitization of the journals and thesis in their growing e-books collection. This will lessen the consumption of space for the printed materials and conform to modernization.

With bigger and better amenities, Rabino is confident that DLSL has gone beyond the requirement of the Commission on Higher Education's 15% seating capacity of the college enrollment, as the college LRC can now accommodate 17%. 

Rabino, who has been a part of the community for almost 20 years and soon to be awarded as the outstanding librarian of Batangas, continue to dream big for the library, considering the immense support she receives from the Brother President and the rest of the community.

DLSLAAI Strengthens Int'l Ties
A five-man delegation from De La Salle Lipa attended the 1st PARC Alumni Leaders' Congress in Hakodate, Japan on June 27 - 29, 2014.  Dr. Bienvenido Jose N. Panganiban, De La Salle Lipa Alumni Association, Inc. (DLSLAAI President) headed the delegation whose members are Crecelda D. Roldan (DLSLAAI Board Member), Gina L. Sabater (DLSLAAI Board Member), Joel U. Pea (DLSLAAI Board Member) and Israel V. Tan (DLSL Alumni Linkages Officer).  

At the opening program held at the summit of Mt. Hakodate, Br. Thomas Lavin FSC, representing the Brother Visitor of Lasallian East Asia District (LEAD), expressed his joy and gratitude in this momentous occasion.  Br. Andre Labelle FSC, representing the Host District, gave a warm welcome to the participants.  They were followed by Henry Atayde, UMAEL president, thanked the JLFSAA for responding to the call of UMAEL, and agreeing to host this congress. Kentaro Noda, Vice President of JFLSAA, welcomed the participants on behalf of their federation. Toshiki Kudo, Mayor of Hakodate, proudly introduced himself as a former Lasallian student and welcomed the participants to his city. And Br. Fermin Martinez FSC, Principal of La Salle Hakodate, gave a toast and invited everybody to the impressive feast.

On Day 2 of the congress, Br. Thomas Lavin FSC, set the tone for the meeting by pointing out what he considered one of the most important objectives of the congress: to promote the formation of members. He emphasized that this should be the central goal of the new alumni vision. The purpose of formation, also expressed in the objectives of the congress, is to support for the Lasallian mission -- the education of the last, the lost and the least.  Br. Andre Labelle FSC reminded the group that the congress is also important to promote fraternity amongst each other and between the countries. Again, the purpose of fraternity should be the Lasallian mission.  Br. Fermin Martinez FSC gave a background of the Brothers presence in Japan and a history of the establishment La Salle schools in the country. He hailed the congress and stressed what they strive to teach their boys -- that what the world needs today is understanding among them.

The Christian Brothers sharing was followed by the presentation of Henry Atayde and Dondon Atayde on alumni leaders formation.  The presenters emphasized that to belong to the association is a free act. Not all graduates are automatically members, only those who adhere to the values, purpose, and responsibilities that come with being a member. Another point of reflection given was the role of women in associations.
Henry Atayde continued the presentation on UMAEL - its history, vision and current state. The foremost concern of UMAEL is the lack of networking and coordination among its members. The way forward from this issue is to 'GLOCALIZE,' or to organize and cooperate on a local and regional perspective first, bearing in mind the global context.

From the regional level, it should prove easier to coordinate and network amongst organized regions. Many regions around the world, such as Europe (RELEM) and South America (RELAL), have already made great efforts in this direction. The Japan Federation, who has taken to heart the UMAEL vision, has taken the initiative for Asia in hosting this first PARC Leaders Congress.

Another priority of UMAEL is the formation of its members. UMAEL shall recommend to all its members to create a Lasallian Mission and Formation Committee in each association. This committee is meant to safeguard the commitment to the Lasallian Mission of Education. UMAEL will provide these committees with materials to aid the work of formation. The presentation was followed by an open forum.  During lunch break, congress delegates were given a tour of La Salle Hakodate, and were treated with a performance by the glee club and brass band.
 
The open forum and discussion continued in the afternoon. Henry Atayde asked the group to review the "Live the Animo" movement as a proposal for the region (PARC). He also opened the discussion on how PARC should organize after this congress, possibly a coordinating body with one to three representatives per country and a regular meeting every two years. He explained that the need to see each other personally is important.

Dondon Atayde suggested that PARC could establish, not necessarily a body, but at least an open line of communication among its members. Through coordination, it would be possible to share best practices, resources, talents, etc. Criselda Roldan and Joel Pena from the Philippines concurred with this suggestion adding that social networking could be a good platform of communication. Mongkol from Thailand added that sharing among countries will also strengthen the alumni associations in the home country, especially as they are made more aware of the global Lasallian family.

The congress was hosted by the Japan Federation of La Salle Alumni Associations (JFLSAA).

International Math Wizards: From School's Pride to Practice...
DLSL Grade School Mathematics Department continues its quest to excellence by bagging different awards in the recently concluded International Competition. ALEX ANTHONY L. ANDAL, Grade 3 of BB-105  has proven another ladder of success  as he garnered the following titles: SILVER Medalist in the PAN Pacific Math Competition Asia Final and BRONZE Medalist in the 2014 Search for King of Math in Hongkong last June 28-July 1, 2014.

Drawing close to thousand participants from China, Hongkong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia and the Philippines, Andal made it to the international competition after his remarkable performance in the series of training programs. The contests challenged the participants by solving different sets of mind-boggling questions for two consecutive days.

Much of the reason for the success stems from the untiring support of his parents, Mr. Alexander Andal and Mrs. Flordeliza Andal who had been there all the way. The Mathematics Curriculum Coordinator, Mr. Dennis Dimaala is equally  grateful to all the support of his teachers (Ms. Rhea Pecayo and Ms. Ehden Petalio) who in one way or another gave intelligent inputs as well as moral and spiritual  inspirations.

Looking back from the previous competitions, DLSL has not been at par with the achievements of excellence, thus, its not just a PRIDE of the school but rather a PRACTICE.


DLSL's Recent TESDA Cookery NC II Passers
The College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management (CIHTM) celebrated another feather in their cap.

After taking the Technical Education and Skills Authority Development's (TESDA) Cookery National Certification Level II on June 20, 2014 at the CIHTM kitchen laboratory, students of the Lipa Institute of Culinary Arts and the Hotel and Restaurant Management, including an alumna, successfully passed the test.

The DLSL community congratulates the following: LICA students Cielo Aninao, Gilfred Ilagan, Jabin Abner Jumarang, and Alynn Maldonado; HRM students Eunice Lumbera, Ma. Ellora Pascua, Denler Receno, and alumna Olga Parallon.

TESDA certification is an essential qualification since its assessment gauges the competence of an individual. The official website of TESDA states that "A National Certificate (NC) is issued when a candidate has demonstrated competence in all units of competency that comprised a Qualification."

Interested and qualified candidates from the institution and nearby schools may conveniently take this assessment on campus after DLSLs accreditation by TESDA as an Assessment Center for Cookery National Certification Level II.






DLSL Holds Mass of the Holy Spirit
In the annual tradition of De La Salle Lipa, its community participates in the Mass of the Holy Spirit to mark the beginning of a new academic year.

Third day, held on June 25, for students from the College of Education, Arts, and Sciences; College of Law; and the College of Nursing, and celebrant was Fr. Ernie Magtibay, OSJ. And the last schedule held June 26 accommodated students from the College of Business, Economics, Accountancy, and Management; College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management; and the College of Information, Technology and Engineering, with celebrant Fr. Joel Villanueva, OSJ.

Celebrants of the mass ardently related their homilies not only to the opening of classes, but most especially to this year's theme "Called to be Heroes; Come Holy Spirit" to provide direction to each and every member of the community and go through another school year with guidance and divine intercession.

DLSL Takes Part in the "One La Salle Yolanda Rehabilitation and Recovery Project"
More than six months after the harrowing devastation caused by one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded - Typhoon Yolanda - to hit the Philippines, much are still needed to be rehabilitated to restore the normal life of the locals in Leyte - one of the provinces that was significantly affected.

De La Salle Lipa was one of the institutions that responded to the call for help in the eastern Visayas. And until now, DLSL is one with the rest of the La Salle schools under the direction of De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) in carrying out the rehabilitation plan of the Philippine Sector.

In fact, the DLSL representatives led by Vice Chancellor for Mission (VCM) Violeta Ramirez joined the DLSP team - leading the task force - headed by Sector Leader Br. Jose Mari Jimenez FSC, with Lasallian Justice and Peace Commission National Coordinator Gladstone Cuarteros, as they flew to Tacloban City on a four-day trip to jump start the realization of the laid out plans and pledge of commitment on rebuilding the communities and classrooms of the public schools.

Upon arrival on May 13, 2014, at the Mercyville Elementary School, the teachers, pupils, and parents welcomed the delegation with open arms. This was the school assigned to DLSL to oversee and assist in the construction of the two out of the eight classrooms that were donated by the Lasallians in the country.

The Sector Leader led the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement with Brgy. Diit, Tacloban City and Brgy. Dulag, Leyte; while other intervention and worthwhile programs were conducted such as art therapy, facilitated by DLSL Integrated School (IS) Guidance Head Jojo Berana, with guidance counselors Wilmer Adajar, and Renie Fabon, and faculty member Violeta Andaleon; cooking demonstration by Lipa Institute of Culinary Arts Head Chef Shirley De Jesus; teachers' training by VCM and IS faculty member Dennis Dimaala; and games and special presentations facilitated by the Community Involvement Officers Maricel Perez,  Reanrose Dragon, Arnel Dimaano and the guidance counselors.

With the forthcoming opening of classes, DLSL likewise donated school supplies to pupils as well as teachers' kits. These items were transported via land transportation - a rented jeepney - with CIO representative Arnel Dimaano accompanying the driver on an arduous 52-hour trip going to Tacloban City.  

Mercyville Elementary School Principal Teresita Macabenta noticed how the kids were relatively receptive and participatory to their Lasallian guests, and she could not be more grateful to all the assistance and donations that they received.   

Overall, 250 pupils, 26 teachers, and 60 parents participated in the implementation of the first phase of the program. DLSP's commitment to the schools and community, in terms of rehabilitation and recovery, will run for two years.    

Trauma is still quite obvious among the residents according to the DLSL delegates as they witness kids who would often cringe in fear every time a hint of rain would envelope their community. That was the reason they designed the conclusion of every activity to be equipped with cathartic processing, especially for the young ones.

Much has to be done in order to complete the One La Salle Post-Yolanda Rehabilitation and Recovery Project,' and it would take a while for the locals to move on and realize that a bright future awaits them. But the Lasallians will make sure that they are not alone in their journey.

DLSL Opens its Doors to Senior High Pioneer Batch
Starting two years ahead of the mandatory implementation of the senior high school (SHS) in the country, De La Salle Lipa offers this program beginning this Academic Year 2014-2015.

In fact, the pioneer batch has their hands full already as their classes began on June 2, a week earlier than the rest of the students in the DLSL community.

President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. met the SHS students to personally welcome them to the newest program. He underscored the privilege that was bestowed upon them. They have availed an opportunity that others have opted to skip and the Brother President lauded them for taking on the challenge that would eventually make them academically at par with global standards, equipped with skills and competencies relevant to their preferred career, and molded in the ideal Lasallian values.

Guided by the DepEd-approved curricula, the students are going to be honed based on their chosen career track, divided into two groups - STEM - for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; and ABM - Accountancy, Business, and Management.  


DLSL TOPS-OFF LIBRARY EXTENSION PROJECT
Lipa City, Batangas - In a simple, but very symbolic rite, De La Salle Lipa held the Topping-Off Ceremony for the DLSL Learning Resource Center Extension Building last 9 May 2014 at 10:00am at the top floor of the raw infrastructure.

Construction activities are flavored with traditions. Some of these are celebrated like the laying of the time capsule. Some are internally practiced like the "padugo" where a live animal is sacrificed to appease the indigenous spirits of the land.

On May 9, a Friday, the construction of the DLSL Learning Resource Center Extension Building has reached the peak of the structure. With this significant milestone, called a Topping Off, DLSL announces to everyone that the institution has succeeded in reaching the total height of the structure.

To help celebrate the gathering, DLSL President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin S. Martinez FSC, D. Min. shared a few reflections about beginnings and providing for the needs of the generations to come.  Gathered together for the celebration were administrators, faculty, staff, and students, together with Engr. Greg Serrano, CEO of Greserr Contractors and Builders, Inc., and his staff, builders of the structure.

The DLSL Learning Resource Center Expansion Project is the institution's response to a dynamic and growing institution.  The current Learning Resource Centers of DLSL needs additional space to accommodate the research, study and discussion needs of its students and faculty.

The expansion project is designed to accommodate 750 students at any given time in its circulation, periodicals and Internet sections, as well as in its audio-visual and discussion rooms.  The design, similar to university libraries in the United States, provides for the Diokno Hall side to house the AV equipments, periodicals, Internet sections and business centers.  The extension ground floor will house the reading halls comprising of two (2) discussion rooms and a mezzanine - for the general circulation collection, the graduate school area and two (2) discussion rooms.

The Annex upper floors will house the College of Law library, five (5) multi-purpose rooms and the archives.

President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. warmly welcomed back his fellow Lasallians and reiterated the directions that he has previously set for the institution.  The Brother President recognized that DLSL is on its right path by acknowledging the scholars the school has produced and quoted excerpts from the students letters expressing their gratitude for the opportunities that were bestowed upon them.

A Warm Visit By Fellow Lasallians From Visayas
Driven by the same cause and bound by the same thrust, though geographically apart, fellow Lasallians from the Visayas - University of St. La Salle (USLS), Bacolod City and De La Salle Andres Soriano Memorial College (DLSASMC), Toledo City, made it possible to pay a visit on April 30 and May 6, respectively.

The USLS group composed of guidance counselors, headed by their Director, Dr. Rowena Banes, met with their counterparts at DLSL. Benchmarking was the main purpose of their trip and this was successfully fulfilled by both the IS and College Guidance Offices, led by the Heads, Loreto Berana and Olive Diokno, respectively. A campus tour and trip within the city of Lipa capped their visit.

Despite their hectic schedule, administrators and faculty members of DLSASMC, led by their President, Dr. Genesa Paragados, made it to DLSL. It was a first visit for the majority of the group and they gladly obliged for a campus tour and a quick trip at the La Salle Brothers' Novitiate just before the sun set and darkness enveloped the campus. The visit would not have been complete without tasting Lipa City's popular delicacy - 'lomi.'






DLSL Sponsors Public School Teachers' Summer Training Program
De La Salle Lipa, in cooperation with De La Salle University-Manila, sponsored the seminar-workshop of 180 Lipa City Public School teachers from May 5 to 16, 2014.

In the opening ceremony held May 5 at the Br. Henry Virgil Gymnasium, DLSL President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. underscored the mission of the Lasallian community, in terms of education, which extends to its neighboring schools. The Brother President shared the story behind the summer training, how it came about, and how Lipa City Vice Mayor Eric Africa became the catalyst of the program. He pointed out that this outreach program aims to enhance the public school teachers' competencies and contribute in the province's educational system.

DLSU's Br. Andrew Gonzales College of Education Dean Dr. John Addy Garcia briefly explained the mechanics of the program to set the expectations, and stated the goal of the training.  

The Lipa City Vice Mayor was also on hand to witness the signing of agreement between DLSL, DLSU, and DepEd Lipa. His closing remarks enlightened the participants on his motivation regarding the furtherance of the public school teachers' education. He believes that there is a compelling need to invest in education, especially in the public schools where a lot of students will benefit in the long run.

Three major subjects will be tackled in the program: English, Science, and Math. Each subject will be comprised of 60 participants and will be trained by DLSU instructors who specialize in the said areas.

Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research Dr. Alicia Botardo and Vice Chancellor for Mission Violeta Ramirez were both present to serve as witnesses.

The closing ceremony and awarding of certificates will be held on May 16 at the Br. Henry Virgil Gymnasium.



DLSL Hosts 4th Artletics
Since 2013 De La Salle Lipa through the Sports and Culture Directorate has been a partner of Artletics, Inc., an organization founded by established artist Emmanuel "Manny" Garibay. Held on April 4-6 at different DLSL venues, the group advocates healthy lifestyles and promotes sports among Filipino artists and cultural workers in their program. 

Integrated in the three-day event were: mural painting, art talks by artists Elmer Borlongan, Renan Cruz, Lisa Ito-Tapang, health and wellness talk by Dr. Jessica De Leon, sporting /fun games, and yoga sessions. College varsity players' assistedon the team sports while the Danz Com members led the warm session. 

A new feature of ARTletics this year, was the participation and assistance provided by the NSTP Department in providing for the paints of the mural painting and the participation of NSTP students in the mural making. 

Also a noteworthy feature of ARTletics is the Pamana Project, where artist-participants pledged to donate their artworks for the build up of the permanent collection of the school. 

The Pamana Project was conceptualized by the Culture and Arts Office and the PMO. 


DLSL & ITN Offer Internship in Spain
Through an addendum to a memorandum of understanding signed by De La Salle Lipa President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. and International Trainee Network, LLC (ITN) Founder and President Rodrigue Colaianni, DLSL students in the College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management may now avail of the internship in Spain.

Certain perks or benefits will also be enjoyed by the interns while they train from six to twelve months in reputable and luxurious hotels or restaurants in Spain, according to the addendum.   

The Brother President met with the ITN officials at the latter's office in Los Angeles, California on March 14, 2014 to make the agreement official.

It was during the visit of ITN International Business Development & Partner Manager Nicholas Jones and Country Manager Atty. Noel Salo on February 21, 2014 when the program in Spain was presented.

Twenty-six students have completed the internship program in the US-based hotels late last year, while twenty-two students and twenty-one alumni are currently in the middle of the same program.





Roldan at the 17th NIPAF Asia Performance Art
De La Salle Lipa's Culture and Arts Officer, Crecelda Roldan, was one of the featured artists in the 17th NIPAF Asia Performance Art Series 2014 (Nippon International Performance Art Festival) held March 11-20 in Japan.

Three major performances of Roldan, which depicted the roles of women in the society, were held in three cities of Japan: Tokyo, Miyazaki and Nagano.

DLSL Holds NCAA-South 15th Season Closing and Turn-Over Rites
In a simple but engaging ceremony held March 27, 2014, the 15th Season of the National Collegiate Athletic Association-South has officially concluded.

Representatives from the member schools, Colegio De San Juan De Letran-Calamba, Don Bosco Technical College-Manadaluyong, Emilio Aguinaldo College-Cavite, De La Salle Lipa, First Asia Institute of Technology and Humanities, Lyceum of the Philippines-Batangas, Philippine Christian University-Dasmarinas, San Beda College-Alabang, St. Francis of Assisi College-Las Pias, San Pablo Colleges, University of Batangas, and University of Perpetual Help System-Laguna, gathered at the Diokno Auditorium of Den.

Policy Board Chair, Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min., addressed fellow members of the board - composed of the schools administrators, the Management Committee members, select coaches, and DLSL representatives. He shared the initial overwhelming task of hosting and how he eventually realized that it was not something that the DLSL community could not handle. The president and chancellor of DLSL, likewise, imparted the seven survival skills he recently learned from a conference abroad which he deemed mutually beneficial to the member schools. And after hosting the 15th season, he contemplated on the necessary adjustments that the schools should make, especially if one would consider looking at the big picture and not just at the micro perspective. The Brother President thanked all the members' support and wished the next host good luck.

Certificates of appreciation and recognition were awarded to all the member schools and the overall winners were subsequently announced, although the formal awarding will take place at the opening ceremony of the 16th season.

The season's Junior Division overall winner is De La Salle Lipa, 1st Runner-Up - San Beda College-Alabnag, and 2nd Runner-Up - University of Batangas; meanwhile the Senior Division overall winner is University of Perpetual Help System-Laguna, 1st Runner-Up - University of Batangas, and 2nd Runner-Up - De La Salle Lipa.

The event concluded with the turn-over rites. Led by DLSLs president and chancellor, the original flag, dated 1999, has been handed over to the next host UPHSL. Paul Victor De Guzman, UPHSL's Marketing Director, received the flag on behalf of Dr. Roberto Tamayo, Vice-President for Sports.

It had been a privilege for DLSL to be the season's host.

DLSL BREAKS GROUND FOR RETREAT COMPLEX
Lipa City, Batangas - Amidst upturned stones and dirt, weeds, bushes and trees gone wild, De La Salle Lipa's stakeholders and the Lasallian East Asia District (LEAD) Brothers turned up last 14 February at 2:00 PM at the DLSL Annex 2 and broke the ground for the DLSL Retreat Complex, targeted to host recollections, retreats and formation activities of the 10,000 plus population of the institution.

The DLSL Retreat Complex was designed by Arch. Antonio Gutierrez, Jr. and will be constructed by Wilconstruct Development Corp. under Arch. Willy Cuizon.  Expected completion date is May 2014.  Initial structure plans show that the complex will have a generous mess hall, four sessions halls, several kiosks, restrooms and a proposed location for a Chapel.  A plan for a dormitory is in the works.

The complex has been in the drawing board for quite sometime but the imperative to ensure the safety and security of students against transporting them to far and varying formation venues and the cost efficiency of the said move enabled the project to jump from paper to ground breaking reality.

Funding for the project has been jumpstarted by the 51st Foundation Week host - the College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management (CBEAM), headed by Dean Lani Garachico.  The CBEAM Department pledged the proceeds of the week-long celebration solely for the construction of the complex.

Highlighting the guest list for the Retreat Complex groundbreaking were PARC General Councilor Br. David Hawke FSC, Auxiliary Visitor Br. Thomas Lavin FSC, Lipa City Councilor Joel Pua, Wilconstruct owner Arch. Willy Cuizon and designer Arch. Tony Gutierrez, Jr., DLSL administrators, ILFO staff and CBEAM representatives.

Completing the guest list were representatives from the Colleges Student Government (SG), Council of Student Organizations (CSO) and the Integrated Schools Student Coordinating Board (SCB).







DLSL Top Performing School in RME Exams
De La Salle Lipa topped the February 2014 Registered Master Electrician (RME) licensure examination with a passing percentage of 85.49%, with 55 passers out of 65 examinees.  Based on the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) report, DLSL is followed by Bicol University - Legazpi.

History
De La Salle Lipa College Department was formally opened in school-year 1984-1985, with former High School Academic Assistant Mrs Elsie Rabago, appointed as Officer-in-Charge. It started with an enrollment of 130 students.



With that the Tertiary School Library was also constructed. By that time the library was still small, consisting of four (4) tables, five (5) shelves and a collection of only 500 volumes of books and a few titles of magazines and newspapers. It had a seating capacity of only 32 individuals.



The high school librarian served as the concurrent tertiary school librarian. In 1987 however, a full-time librarian, Ms. Gloria Panggat Lumbera, was hired to develop the library, its services and collection.



In 1996, the College Library was transferred to the ground floor of then newly constructed Sen. Jose Diokno Building. Its floor area was expanded to seat 240 individuals. Library collections were increased and audio-visual materials were procured. In addition, an internet laboratory was provided to meet the community’s need for relevant information and for research assistance.



In 1999, the library was divided into three sections – periodicals, technical, and audio-visual – to better respond to its objectives. Three full time librarians were appointed to oversee these areas along with a head librarian who supervises the entire operations.



In April 2003, Ms. Eileen Magadia was designated as the Head Librarian of the College Library. The library was later referred to as the Learning Resource Center (LRC). The LRC underwent evaluation for Level 1 accreditation of the two Tertiary School programs.



The LRC was further expanded to meet the needs of the increasing number of enrollees. Its seating capacity was increased to 400. The audio- visual section was transferred to the third level of the Sen. Jose Diokno Building along with the Lipasalliana archives which was added to the LRC’s revised organizational set-up. The Nursing Library, an extension library was likewise put up at the Mabini Building . LRC personnel increased and improved with four registered librarians, one archivist, and six library clerks.



De La Salle Lipa College LRC continues and will continue to pursue its mission to serve the Lasallian family and other people who seek assistance for their reading, research and instructional needs.

DLSL celebrates feast of St. La Salle
In a modest and solemn celebration of the Holy Eucharist, the De La Salle Lipa community gathered at the Capilla de San Juan Bautista De La Salle on May 15, 2013 to honor the feast of the founder of the Christian Brothers' ministry and the De La Salle schools - St. John Baptist De La Salle. In his homily, Fr. Antonio Umali emphasized how the founder's name and story became known worldwide and the enormity of its influence in the country to date. He cited examples of people he knew, who have proven time and again, that the name "De La Salle" has earned quite a reputation throughout the years. St. La Salle, a patron saint of the teachers, is not only a teacher of the poor. As a pioneer and innovator, he introduced a revolutionary system in the landscape of education, the classroom type of teaching, which has been practiced from his time to present.

Dealing with students in crisis
"Students in Crisis, How Can We Help Them?" - this was the forum's compelling theme held on May 6, 2013 at the Diokno Auditorium, Sen. Jose Diokno Hall in De La Salle Lipa, to address one of the most dreaded issues that needs immediate attention.

The event, organized by the Vice Chancellor for Mission division, was intended to equip the public schools' faculty members from 71 public schools in Batangas, with first hand facts and first aid know-how in dealing with students who are going through an emotional breakdown and those who are being bullied.

One of the resource speakers, Atty. Ramel Muria, DLSL faculty, discussed "Anti-Bullying: Policies and Mechanics." His subject matter was broken down to several interconnected topics: 1) Meaning and Relevant Concepts of Bullying under D.O. No. 40, Series of 2012; 2) "Dealing with Bad Kids" through "Preventive Measure and Protective Measures;" 3) the "Procedures in Handling Bullying Incidents in School;" and 4) "Child Protection."

The next part of the seminar was led by Dr. Dinah Palmera P. Nadera, the resource speaker on "Understanding Suicide and Facts about It." Based on the "Suicide First Aid Guidelines," she discussed suicide prevention for her first topic; secondly, "Understanding Suicide;" and presented the local suicide data, such as, suicide rates, suicide reporting, and risk factors.

To make sure everyone kept close attention to pertinent details of the discussion, a quiz was given by Dr. Nadera, to commence the second part of her session. Subsequently, she shared the "Suicide Warning Signs," and lastly, she presented the "Suicide First Aid Guidelines for the Philippines."
